grillin' and chillin' sign

This fun sign doubles as a tool holder for the griller in your house! Use a natural basswood live edge plank to make this sign that will look great hanging on your patio.
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Size the design as you would like it to appear on your wood sign.

Step 3

Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 4

Place the stencil vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select your material and follow the prompts to cut out your design. Once the machine has finished cutting, gently peel the vinyl away from your mat. Repeat for the red vinyl layer.

Step 5

Cut apart the words so they are all separate pieces. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the vinyl from inside of the words. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper. Be sure to leave vinyl around the words for stenciling.

Step 6

Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s just a bit larger than the word "Grillin". Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over this part of the design. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.

Step 7

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 8

Hold the transfer tape with the design over your surface to determine where you’d like it placed. Now, press it onto your surface. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.

Step 9

Trace around the inside of the letters using a pencil, then remove the stencil vinyl.

Step 10

Follow the instructions included with your wood burning tool. Wood burn the word using your rounded shading point.
TIP: You may want to practise on a piece of scrap wood, or even the back of your sign. First, trace the outline of each letter, then hold the tool at about a 45° angle and pull the tool toward you with the point on the wood to fill in the letters. Try gently pushing the point back and forth or side to side over the wood for better wood burn coverage.

Step 11

Next, apply the stencil vinyl for the word "Chillin" following the instructions in Steps 6-8. Apply paint over the words using a paintbrush. Remove the stencil vinyl and let the paint dry.

Step 12

Repeat Steps 6-8 to attach the red circle with transfer tape.

Step 13

Turn your plaque over and use a staple gun to attach jute for a hanger on the back.

Step 14

Finally, turn your plaque back over and screw in the cup hooks along the bottom of the front of your plaque.
